President's Message:

R.I.P. Harold Sach Leigh

It is with great sadness that I must report to you the loss of one of RIMAs original Members. Harold Sach Leigh passed away on April 14th. Sach provided nearly 40 years of service to RIMA and its Mission. He was the original coordinator of the annual Toys for Tots Charity Motorcycle Run and has provided his service as Santa Claus during each years run since its inception in 1978. It was with great honor that I was able to present Sach with the Rhode Island Motorcycle Association Outstanding Member Award in February at our 40th Anniversary Annual Meeting and Award Banquet. He has left this world but will never be forgotten. Details pertaining to his service arrangements will be provided once they have been made available.
